X-Men fans are scrambling to find out more about the mysterious new villain that was featured in the final clip in Days of Future Past. The villain with grey skin and blue lips is none other than Apocalypse. Most of the X-Men audience knows little or nothing about the first mutant. Apocalypse may be the most powerful mutant of all time and is definitely the oldest. Many fans want to know about the powers and abilities of the new evil mutant. Apocalypse has a wide range of abilities and powers that make him an incredible threat to now just the X-Men but to the entire world.
Apocalypse has the ability to control the molecular structure of his body which gives him a wide range of abilities. He can shape change and form extensions to his body such as wings or weapons from his hands like a sword or a mace. Apocalypse can elongate his body to unknown lengths. He can shape shift and form various disguises. Molecular control gives him an immunity to aging, which makes him the oldest mutant on earth.
Apocalypse has the ability to change the mass of his body and become harder than steel. The same power gives him the ability to simulate various metals to produce body armor and provides excellent protection from attack. When using density control and molecular control together, Apocalypse can change his size and levels of strength.
Apocalypse has a host of additional abilities that come from his various powers. He can fly with the shape change that produces wings. Apocalypse can change host bodies when needed to preserve his age and then change that body into his own. For unknown reasons, Apocalypse has the ability to teleport for place to place but it is unknown if this is a mutant power or comes from technology.
Apocalypse has been able to master a series of alien technologies that only increase his abilities and his power over other mutants. Apocalypse possesses technology that allows him to alter the DNA of other mutants that helps him to increase their existing powers and potentially give them new powers. He also possesses a device called a resurrection chamber that preserves the life of anyone placed in the chamber. Apocalypse can revive himself or any of the other mutants that are under his command.
The X-Men will have their hands full dealing with the powerhouse that is Apocalypse. Fans will have to wait nearly two more years before seeing the epic clash of mutant power. X-Men Apocalypse comes to theaters in May 2016.
